Confessioni di un’inguaribile romantica (Confessions of an incurable romantic)

Irma Adelman

Abstract


The paper is a contribution to the series "Recollections of Eminent Economists" that the "Banca Nazionale del Lavoro Quarterly Review" and "Moneta e Credito" ran since 1979. Irma Adelman is the only woman economist to have contributed so far, partly due to the untimely passing away of other prominent women economists such as Joan Robinson. In this work, Adelman recalls her personal and academic biography, ranging from childhood in Romania to her experiences of discrimination in US academia.
